Law Libraries According to Law Student Bloggers

"I'm finding it hard to imagine that there's 45 minutes of stuff to see in the library. Unless they're going to have us shelve books, or complete a short research assignment while we're there," wrote one law student blogger of first year library orientations tours.

Understanding law student attitudes and behavior is key to sucessfully marketing the law library. Fortunately, as Rob Hudson of St. Thomas University School of Law writes, "many law students record their feelings as they progress through law school in Blawgs intended to inform their peers, but they also provide a wealth of information and amusement for librarians."

Law Students Write About Law Libraries (or, What Students Really Think: A Survey of Student Blawgs) is the article by Mr. Hudson that appears in the latest version of the ALL-SIS Newsletter. Highly recommended for academic law librarians.
